Silk/Viscose Shirt by Christophe Lemaire

I’ve been wearing, almost exclusively, cotton shirts for so long I can’t even remember the last time I had such a silk-ish shirt. I remember rayon was big in the 80′s so maybe it’s been that long.

I thought this one by Christophe Lemaire at The Broken Arm in Paris was very cool.  (more about the great new shop The Broken Arm very soon.)

Books I Bought in Paris……Gustave Caillebotte: An Impressionist and Photography

I love Impressionism and I love photography, so this book was a no brainer.


If I was patient I would have waited to get back to New York and order it on Amazon; but I’m not, and books like this are perfect for the long flight back after fashion week.

So Much Can Be Done with So Little, Paris

I just think this guy always looks so cool, and yet he does it with such simple items. George Cortina has also always been a master of this chic simplicity.

Today, by coincidence, I was looking for an old image and found the first shot of this gentleman back from 2008.


I’ve often said that personal style is about consistency; this man has great personal style.

Are We All Still Instagramming?

I really enjoy Instagram and the unique, immediate, and visual way it helps us communicate, but the whole advertising controversy kinda killed my buzz for it.


I want to get back to that kind of image sharing but it takes a certain constant mental/visual awareness to do it correctly, so I want to pick the right platform.


I love the audience that I’ve already built at Instagram, but are there other formats like Instagram that you guys love?

This Guy Looks Great…with Only One Bracelet!, Florence

Ok guys, I think we’ve gotten a little carried away with the arm-full-of-bracelets trend.  If one is good, seven is not seven times better.

On the Street…..Angelo of Spring, Paris

I’ve never seen Angelo wear so much color!

I think he’ll break Spring early from sheer force of style.
